You can find all items that have a Public Domain cc license by doing this search:

I know, it's more complicated than it should be, huh? So here's how to break it down. See the license types at creative commons. When you want to find all of the items that have a certain license, you'll plug their abbreviation for it into this search query:


So if you're looking for Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives (by-nc-nd), you'd put this in the search box: /metadata/licenseurl:(http*by-nc-nd/*) And you'd get about 33,000 items back.

If you want to use this in combination with other queries, like "I want by-nc-nd items about dogs" you'd do this: /metadata/licenseurl:(http*by-nc-nd/*) AND dog And you'd get 195 items. The AND tells the search engine all the items returned should have that license AND they should contain the word dog. AND has to be in all caps.

Just to make it easier, here are the searches:
